If this scenario feels familiar, you are not alone and we might just have the answer you need, texture. For some reason, texture seems to always to be an afterthought when it comes to interiors and we are here to change that. Our reasoning, texture is the thing that makes a room pop. It is what brings a perfectly fine design up to enviable levels.
Create a focal point. There are leading roles and supporting cast members in any production. The same holds true in design. Choose your star and make it the focal point to anchor a room. Allow other items to take a secondary role. Do not ask everything to have a leading role, it will just result in visual noise. Your focal point might be a dramatic hood in the kitchen, a mantel and art piece in the living room or a headboard in the bedroom.
Usually gather in these spaces at night, a time when a deep color, such as claret or aubergine, illuminated by candlelight, draws you and your guests to the table. Powder rooms are another, which should be treated as little jewels and departures from the rest. It you think of the way we describe certain emotions, seeing red, feeling blue, green with envy, there is no denying that color and mood are inextricably linked.
Just wanted to use that pattern everywhere and not break it up with different colors or patterns. To that end refrained from introducing any of the vibrant colors used on the homes ground floor. Wanted to feel a little calmer, quieter, even though it is not a calm, quiet fabric. What is a great way to bring in brighter hues without it feeling overwhelming?
